Ultramarines Devastators

After a couple of months painting white, gold and cloth, it was time to focus on models that I find a bit easier to paint.   Since day one I have always loved the Devastator Squads. To me, they portray the essence of the fire power Marines can field. I am a bit of a nutt-case. I already have 3 Devastator Squads, but often find myself “borrowing” heavy weapons from my Tactical Squads to arm them in the way I want to field them. That means that the squad markings are not correct, and that is a real problem… Hence, it was time to rectify that problem!
To me there is nothing more iconic than Heavy Bolters, so I built and painted 4 of them.

While I was at it, I also built and painted two models with Plasma Cannons, so I can field 4 of them with correct unit markings.

Finally, I built and painted two models with Las cannons, so I can field 4 of them with correct unit markings.

The whole batch of 8 Devastators

What next? I have to return to the remaining 18 models I need to complete my 1. Company. Wish me luck, the remaining models will take a lot of effort given my limited skills.



  1. "Limited skill..." Sure! ;)

    Terrifying! I'm pretty sure you have a few Devastators more then the Codex stipulates now. It sure is a good thing that a fluffy "2nd Company" army won't have more than two squads, with four heavy weapons each, in total. ;)

    Solid no-nonsense expression on these guys. Not the white helmets and blingy accessories of the veterans here. Just the business end of very large guns.
